Chinese Medicine uses the tongue and pulse to assist in examining the internal state of the body. 👅 The centre represents the gut
👅 The sides the liver/gallbladder
👅 The tip is the heart
👅 The root is the kidneys
This forms part of the basis of TCM diagnosis.
Add to this the coat of the tongue, the texture, shape, colour... you’ve got a pretty amazing tool! 🙌 At our clinic The Pagoda Tree this is one of the many incredible TCM tools we use. Give reception a call on 96867454 to find out more. 🌿
